Dibble is killing them. If Harris and Morgan are your future, then it's not bright as some of the koolaid drinkers want you to believe.

Offense shows signs of life and God intervenes.  Beautifully timed rain delay.

Maybe Cueto will get tight and give up a ton of runs after the delay.

I rather enjoyed Dibble's analysis.  He tells it like it is.  I can't picture any of the O's announcers saying stuff like this.  Angelos would fire their sorry a$$e$.  When Dibble says the players don't have to be your friends, he's directly criticizing Riggleman.  He doesn't think this has to be a popularity contest but rather you should be playing your best players.

sounded a bit like someone "got" to Dibble at the break.

Dibble was at the Reds HOF Gala last night... seeing so many great players... he probably remembered that as an MLB player, you're not supposed to automatically suck.

Part of it may be directed at Nook Morgan.  They may like him for the Silver Elvis Wig, but the team needs to win games, and he needs to get on base more often.



This team should be taking more fielding practice or stick to the same positions played.  Do SOMETHING to improve the awful fielding by this team.

Dibbs don't need the money or this job. I think he will always be very, very vocal and critical. Dibbs is a Bowden guy isn't he? If Rizzo don't like ya... 3 strikes and your out!

I can't believe people hate on Martin.

He's got great command and can eat innings.

I'd say he's 3rd best on the staff behind Stras and Livo.

Note to Rob and Bob - humid air is THINNER than dry air, so balls travel farther.  Please make a note of it.

Strange call.  Seems a just outcome, but I'm not looking for justice, I'm looking for runs.

and now it's time for Dibble to again rip on Riggleman for starting Harris.
